Roughage is insoluble fiber, often scratchy in texture. Many people with IBS or IBD have been told to increase their intake of soluble fiber, the soothing substance that turns into a gel and helps to calm an irritated digestive system.
However, it is often difficult to find soluble fiber information for the foods you consume every day.
This book contains over 450 entries in several charts--useful for anyone with bowel problems like diarrhea or constipation, or health-conscious individuals interested in increasing their daily fiber consumption.
Additional chapters include:
- How Much Fiber Do You Need?
- Foods High in Soluble Fiber
- Foods High in Insoluble Fiber
- How Does Soluble Fiber Help IBS and IBD?
- Internet Resources
